Linux Installation Instructions

There are two methods to use Sizzy on Linux:

  • Installing using AppImageLauncher (recommended)
  • Running a portable version using AppImage.


On certain Linux distributions, the app fails to launch due to missing packages required to run Chromium-based apps. In this case, try installing the following packages:

atk at-spi2-atk gtk3 libgtk-3.0 libatk-bridge2.0-0 lib32-gtk2 java-atk-wrapper libXt libatk-bridge

1. Download and install the latest version of AppImageLauncher for your distro.

3. Right-click the Sizzy.AppImage file and open it with AppImageLauncher.

4. You'll get the option to run the image once or to install it by integrating it into your system. Choose Integrate and run.

This will install Sizzy and give you an app icon that you can pin to your dock or run through your distro's app launcher.

Method 2: Making the AppImage executable

With this method, Sizzy will work, but as a portable app that you have to run from your Downloads folder every time (or, by creating a shortcut to the AppImage file on your desktop).

2. Navigate to the folder where you downloaded the AppImage to. Right-click the file, and click on Properties.
